In the controversial issue of GQ magazine, Glee star Lea Michele reveals that she is proud to never have plastic surgery.
24-year old Lea Michele isn’t your traditional beauty. Her nose is a little larger than is usually considered camera ready in Hollywood. In the new issue of GQ, Lea says that she had thought about having a nose job back in high school, but decided against it on the advice of her mother.
“I was one of the only girls in my high school that didn’t get one,” she says in the issue, according to an excerpt. “And if anybody needed it, I probably did. But my mom always told me, growing up, ‘Barbra Streisand didn’t get a nose job. You’re not getting a nose job.’ And I didn’t. F— those people. That’s why I’m proud to be on a positive show and to be a voice for girls and say, ‘You don’t need to look like everybody else. Love who you are.’”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “Lea Michele looks great and her nose fits her face and her personality well. It’s fabulous that she has great self confidence and loves her look. I haven’t met many people that once they know I am a plastic surgeon aren’t automatically compelled to tell me about one or two things they would love to have done with plastic surgery. Similar to Barbara Streisand and Adrian Brody, some actors/actresses have a signature body part or look and it could actually be detrimental for their career to change that.”
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., says, “Having plastic surgery is a personal decision. It is not necessarily common or uncommon for an individual to decide not to have plastic surgery.”
With all high school sexual shenanigans going on in the new GQ spread of the Glee cast, Makemeheal.com is sure no one is going to be looking at Lea’s nose.
